Synopsis:

"When I was growing up, my mother did all of the cooking at home and the variety was endless. But it was her everyday Chinese home cooking that I remember best—the often-revisited stir-fry dishes that are simple, easy, delicious, and part of the culinary repertoire of most Chinese families. I hope you will enjoy this collection of some of my favorites. Perhaps some will become part of your everyday cooking, too. So come with me to my kitchen and let me share with you what the Chinese do in theirs." —Helen Chen

From the Inside Flap:

Helen Chen grew up cooking with her mom, Joyce Chen, the pioneering restaurateur who helped introduce Americans to authentic Chinese cooking in the 1960s. The dishes Helen remembers most fondly—and still cooks today—are her mom's simple, home-style stir-fries. Now she presents more than sixty of these soul-satisfying Chinese favorites, all perfect for easygoing weeknight dinners.

Inside, you'll find many familiar dishes—Kung Pao Chicken, Moo Shi Pork, and Sweet and Sour Shrimp, to name just a few—and find out just how easy it is to prepare them at home. You'll also discover lots of less familiar dishes that are equally delicious, such as Chicken with Cashew Nuts, Black Pepper Beef with Green Beans, and Shanghainese Shrimp with Peas. In addition, you'll find nearly twenty healthy tofu and vegetable dishes, ranging from Grandmother's Spicy Bean Curd to Garlicky Green Beans.

To help you get started, Helen provides a thorough overview of Chinese cooking techniques, equipment, and ingredients. You'll discover why cornstarch is important, how much oil to use in a wok, and what kinds of soy sauce you should choose. With Helen's clear instructions and straightforward recipes, you'll soon be cooking and enjoying a wide variety of delectable stir-fries.

Throughout the book, more than thirty gorgeous color photographs show just how deliciously appealing these stir-fries can be. Complete with Helen's fascinating notes on each dish, this handsome cookbook is just what you need to explore the simple pleasures of home-style Chinese cooking.
